 MIL-704 Training, MIL-STD-704 Training

MIL-STD-704 Training covers all aspects of MIL-STD-704 testing and measurement procedures in order to pass comprehensive testing to demonstrate compliance.

Learn how Electronic systems designed for operation in a U.S. DoD aircraft must comply with MIL-STD-704, which defines requirements and certain parameters and characteristics the electric power in an aircraft must meet:  pass comprehensive acceptance testing, measuring responses to a large set of events and conditions, including voltage transients, over- and under-frequency, over- and under-voltage and power transfer operations.

This 2-day MIL-STD-704 training covers the requirements and characteristics of aircraft electric power provided at the input terminals of electric and electronic equipment:  specific type of electrical power to be used and the detailed performance required during normal, abnormal, emergency, starting, transfer and power failure operation of the electric system in question.


A cross reference to RTCA-DO-160 test methods is provided compared to MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-461 and MIL-STD-704.

Topics covered:

  • MIL STD 704  requirements and characteristics of aircraft electric power
  • Guidance: MIL-HDBK-704-1 through-8
  • Test methods and procedures for determining airborne utilization equipment compliance with the electric power characteristics requirements
  • Aircraft Electrical Power Characteristics with respect to standardized power interface between a military aircraft and connected or contained equipment and carriage stores, covering areas
  • Testing of voltage, frequency, phase, power factor, ripple, maximum current, electrical noise and abnormal conditions such as overvoltage and under voltage, for both AC and DC systems
  • Aircraft 28 V dc power interface
  • Aircraft 115/200 V 400 Hz ac power interface
  • Aircraft 270 V dc power interface
